Very nice packaging, healthy looking seeds. Quick response in sending seeds, I will be back for more!

By realityfaery on Dec 12, 2017 3:35 AM, concerning SeedsNow:

Love SeedsNow, they really care about the quality of seeds they offer. Not only that, they offer great prices with constant sales. The seeds always look great and the shipping is quick. They are worth every penny and then some.

I ordered some vegetable seeds from them. All of them germinated no problem.

I've ordered a couple of times from zone9, they shipped quickly and the plants always look fantastic. Definitely worth a look. They have a wide array of tropical looking plants for zone 9.

I have done a few orders with Karchesky Cannas and I can't say enough great things about them! Alice is fantastic and extremely helpful. I'll never order cannas from anyone else.

I just bought this book, it is my first year trading seeds and it is a great companion to help me with stratification, planting depth, and even what the seeds look like when gathered. What a wonderful find for me, I wholeheartedly recommend!

By Monetwwqi on Dec 2, 2017 3:48 AM, concerning J.L.Hudson, Seedsman:

I look forward to getting my J.L. Hudson catalog. It's the only catalog I read thoroughly every year, I always learn something new.
I've been ordering from them for over 20 years and have never had a problem. I love trying new plants. Even though I buy seeds nearly every year my old seeds from them have had very good viability.

By B on Nov 21, 2017 9:33 AM, concerning Tropical Plants & More:

I recently made my second purchase from Tropical Plants & More. As with my first experience, it was very satisfying. I've ordered orchids and other plants from multiple online sources, but the plants that I've received from TP&M are the healthiest, most beautiful specimens that I've ever seen. My order shipped quickly and the packaging was impeccable. It's clear that Ken cares deeply about the health and well-being of the plants that he sells. All around excellent service.

By Lakeside on Nov 18, 2017 5:27 PM, concerning Wayside Gardens:

I placed a mid November order for several clearance priced plants from Wayside. I ordered three heucheras, an actea, and a scotch broom. I was so happy with the quality of the plants received! Considering these were end of season deals, I kind of expected to receive some ragged plants, but everything looked great! And they arrived very well packed. I'm sometimes leery about ordering plants from mail order companies, but based on this experience, I'll be ordering from Wayside again.

By critterologist on Nov 13, 2017 12:04 PM, concerning Perfect Plants:

Wow! I won 3 roses in an NGA not-a-raffle, and they arrived in beautiful condition -- covered in blooms! My DMIL, for whom I chose the plants, was bowled over by them. They'll go around a flagpole I plan to put in for my DFIL, at the corner of their new retirement community cottage, so having such beautiful little plants was extra meaningful to me.

While you can often find knockout and drift roses in "box stores," you don't generally find them as healthy and, yes, "perfect" as the ones I received. Thanks!

As others have mentioned, their packing is terrific. They ship in 1 gallon pots, with soil. The pots are bagged to retain soil and moisture. In addition to tape, bamboo sticks in the pots that reach to the "top" of the box keep the plants from banging around the box in transit.

I do wonder how much shipping charges are, ordinarily, since shipping dirt & all isn't cheap. Since I'm likely to place a "real" order with them, I guess I'll find out!

By Lakeside on Nov 10, 2017 8:03 PM, concerning Flower Art & Soul:

Flower Art & Soul sells bulk flower seeds at very affordable prices. I've been ordering from them for years and I'm always very happy with the quality of the seed and promptness of service. The packaging is basic, just a ziploc bag with a label. I love receiving those big quart size bags of seeds in the spring. I like to direct seed a bunch every year. Great way to fill up a large area with flowers for not much money.

By evelyninthegarden on Nov 7, 2017 7:36 PM, concerning Blue Bird Haven Iris Garden:

Bluebird Haven Iris Garden is the largest historic Tall Bearded Iris Garden in the U.S. It is a Victorian show garden in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. An acre of landscaped iris, daffodils, wildflowers, and a variety of shrubs and trees are surrounded by acres of row-cultivated iris.

During the bloom season over 100,000 irises will be displaying their vibrant colors. Their garden features a Victorian gazebo, park benches, paths for viewing and selecting your favorite irises, and picnic tables for a leisurely lunch.

Mary Hess is the hardest-working woman I know, as she manages this business by herself, only with occasional help. She carries over 4000 varieties of both modern and historic irises and her prices are fair as well.

As of last speaking with her, she has been planning to install a new website, as the current one is unable to give you an idea if an iris is out of stock. Also she has more irises that have not been entered into the website. So she will take orders by email and let you know what she has available. She just wants you to email your wish list to her and she will get back with you. Of course, if you are ordering in her busy season between May and June, it might be a wait. I don't know when she starts taking orders, but if you are looking for a rare iris, it would be good to email her early in the year.
